Occupational components of wellness
- "It is better to choose a career which is consistent with our personal values, interests and beliefs than to select one that is unrewarding to us."
- "It is better to develop functional, transferable skills through structured involvement opportunities than to remain inactive and uninvolved."
National Wellness Institute
Occupational wellness is centered around finding rewarding work, where you can use your special skills and talents to make a positive contribution. The work you chose, it's alignment with your values, your attitude about the work you do, your career ambitions and having opportunities for growth are important elements of this component of wellness.
